Relation between dietary habits and pediatric dermatoses is well established in literature. Every dermatologist needs to have a thorough evidence-based knowledge of all the skin conditions that are affected by food either directly or indirectly, especially in today's world, where patients are looking for holistic solutions for all their ailments. Nutritional deficiencies, metabolic conditions, dermatitis herpetiformis, and urticaria are well-known entities related to food. Apart from these, a few skin conditions such as atopy, acne, and psoriasis have some correlation to food intake. A thorough knowledge of diet and its effect on dermatological conditions is important where alternative systems lay a lot of stress on the kinds of food that may be consumed in certain skin conditions. Parents should be counseled about the myths related to dietary modifications as this may lead to nutritional deficiencies in children.
